In Essence, Bullies Only Hide Behind Their Targets

Bullies are pathetic, aren’t they? Every time I think of this fun fact, I can’t help but chuckle because I know that deep down inside, bullies of all ages are nothing but scared little punks and punkettes. But what are they so afraid of?

Many things. Bullies are scared of having their weaknesses exposed, of having their sins known, and most of all, losing face. And they should be.

They go to great lengths to hide their imperfections and put on an air of gleaming-white perfection.

Keeping up appearances is hard work and bullies often resent their victims for their authenticity and not having to work as hard as they do!

To keep up these facades, bullies often project their shortcomings onto their targets or use their victims’ imperfections to distract others’ attention from their own. Projection and Distraction are some of the biggest and most-used tactics of bullies.

Understand that bullies are fake. To be successful at convincing others that they are invincible and have a perfect life, they have to stay on their toes always.

They also tend to exaggerate their own importance, intelligence, and toughness; then live with the risks of being discovered for who and what they are.

Make no mistake about it, underneath the con-act, the bullies I’ve known are the dumbest, most incompetent and inadequate people I know.

They are also sniveling cowards at their core. Why else would they need an innocent victim to hide behind?

If you are a target of bullying and your bullies hide behind you too, know this!

They are right where they belong- behind you!

  1. Cherie, I always love reading your wonderful message. I had never realized until I read your piece that as the scapegoated child of a narcissistic mother I had been horribly bullied by my mother for quite a long time. Thanks so much again for sharing, I’m sorry you were bullied as well. Be well, Heidi

    • You’re most welcome! And thank you so much for your kind words, Heidi! I’m so sorry you were bullied by someone you loved and who was supposed to love you. That has got to be the most heartbreaking and heart wrenching of all trypes of bullying. What you endured was far worse than what I went through. Know that I’m sending you lots of love and light. Bless you, sweetie! ❤
